Xlibris Corporation, Aug 27, 2010 - Biography & Autobiography - 153 pages
My life has been an interesting journey. I have traveled all over the world, met many people, done many things, and most of the time, I was happy. Although, to be perfectly honest, there were many times when suicide seemed like the best answer. During those times, Im sure it was my faith in God that pulled me through. I am a strong believer in God. I am not a person who goes to churchhavent been to church in many a year, except for weddings and funeralsbut I do believe in God and prayer. Now, if you would like to share some of my experiences with me, just hold on. I will tell all and hope you enjoy the story of my life with my sistersas I remember.
